Trackback Pings


I have a need. The christian radio station that I had been listening to for about 3 years, just stopped playing christian anything on Wed.
03-08-06. I was driving home. I turned on my radio to 107.5 Alive and no christian anything. I was in shock and upset at the same time. I live in Chester County, PA and I work in Radnor, PA which I believe is either Chester or Montgomery County, Pa. So can you help re-direct me to some choices cause I missed my favorite programs while driving home last night.
They are: Adventures in Odyssey / Back to the Bible/ Truth for Life.
thanks for any advise.
May God bless you and yours each and every day.

I'm just wondering if anybody is looking to start a christian radio station in the North eastern section of Pennsylvania were local churches can support in buying air time. I believe this venture will greatly increase the body of Christ in this area of the vinyard( Mount Pocono, Stroudsburg, Tobyhanna, Bartonsville and Allentown).

Dr. Joel C. Hunter just wrote a book called Right Wing, Wrong Bird (it's on Amazon here) that talks about the shortfalls of traditional Christian politics. He's really passionate about Christians tackling global warming to the point that was even featured in an international tv commercial encouraging Christians to care for the environment.
